prof. dr. M. Sarot

Full Professor 

Tilburg School of Catholic Theology
Department of Systematic Theology and Philosophy


As Dean of the Tilburg School of Theology (2nd term 2018-2021) my main task (0.6 fte) is to contribute to the flourishing of teaching and research at TST through efficient administration. Key terms are: improving the quality and impact of our research, internationalisation (both in teaching and in research), stimulating the formation of Nachwuchs, updating the profile of some of our degree programs, and fundraising.

Having been trained in analytical philosophy and having worked in an ecumenical context for 25 years, I am now applying my skills, knowledge and experience to issues in fundamental theology and dogmatics in my research (0.2 fte). Moreover, I enjoy handing on my knowledge to a younger generation through teaching (0.2 fte). 

Now is the time to lay the foundation for a new flourishing of the Church and of Systematic Theology in the Netherlands!

Key words: ecclesiology, prayer, evil, Apostles' Creed, Aquinas, CS Lewis
